Imadegawa-dori

Kyoto University

Hattori Orimono

Imadegawa-dori runs east-west for about 7 kilometers. We start at the eastern end in an area referred to as students' town, where Kyoto University and several others of Kyoto's many universities are located. We visit facilities, where we can feel history, and shops along the street nearby, which have their own distinctive characters. Further to the west, we find a concentration of weavers in Nishijin, who gave birth to a dazzling textile culture. This area, which has many reminders of days gone by, is home to well-established businesses that keep traditional methods alive and craftsmen who are particular about producing authentic products. We map this street and looking at its diverse faces.
